Hyzon Motors wants to produce up to 1,000 hydrogen-powered trucks next year at its Winschoten facility located in the Netherlands.
The zero-emissions vehicle manufacturer on Wednesday (Oct 13) announced its ambitions as it unveiled a glimpse into its largest production site.
Set to be a European hub for vehicle assembly, the site will see both the development of the vehicles themselves and the supporting technologies.
On the company growth, Craig Knight, CEO of Hyzon, said, “The momentum around hydrogen is rapidly growing across Europe.
“The new facility allows us to respond to this demand today and to scale quickly as demand increases over the coming years.”
The Winschoten facility opened in March 2021 and currently has a capacity of up to 500 trucks per year.
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
